Smoke from the Pacific Northwest as well as Idaho and Montana has been slowly drawn into Colorado this past week because of a ridge of high pressure. So our sunsets and sunrises have been a peach or orange color for most of the week. Fellow blogger John Strong mentioned in his post last week how the haze was affecting a project of his.
I leave for Phoenix today for a short visit with my parents and take in a bit of their August heat. I may be in for a pleasant trip as their forecast calls for temperatures in the high 90s and 30 % showers for the next few days. I’m also planning on seeking out a few sunrise shots along the Peralta Trail while I’m out there.
